The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated $10,000 to The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. These funds will specifically support the purchase of new technology for the Boys & Girls Club’s computer lab.
Every year, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club serves more than 400 local youth through the after-school and all-day program and the summer day camp. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has donated these funds to update the 10-year-old computers in the Boys & Girls Club’s computer lab. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints makes this donation as part of their Humanitarian Project of North America.
“We are excited to once again partner with the Salvation Army in helping to meet the needs of our local community. Especially during this challenging time of virtual learning for so many students, we know the new computers for the Boys and Girls Club will be put to great use." President Michael McClellan, President of the Greenville SC East Stake.
“Over the past year, our Boys & Girls Club adapted our program to serve virtual and e-learning students during the day,” says Mike Burdine, executive director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Greenville, SC. “This expanded program increased the already-heavy usage of our computers, which have not been updated in nearly 10 years. However, thanks to this generous donation from the Latter-day Saints, we will be able to give our Club members the technology they need to succeed.”
